Explorations of Life and Enlightenment

Welcome!

Blue featherMy name is David “Davidya” Buckland.

This site explores what it means to live life approaching, transitioning, and living in post-personal stages of development; what we often call enlightenment. These stages build on more familiar stages of personal development studied by psychology and biology.

I post articles as they arise, so please subscribe to receive notification of the latest.

This site began in 2007 and contains thousands of articles. During that time, my perspective has grown and I’ve changed how I see and describe our potential unfolding. This evolution continues. You won’t find a list of correct concepts or truths but ways of seeing the spiritual journey, oneself, and the world. Old articles don’t become wrong, I just add other perspectives. Use them to support your journey but don’t confuse a map with the road. Let your direct experience guide you.

And now, the latest blog posts…

The Contrast

Our Gifts

Each of us has gifts to offer the world. It may take life experiences to recognize them and experimentation to discover how the world wants them expressed. You can also do exercises to help surface …

Willingness

On the spiritual journey, we’ll periodically have plateaus where progress appears to have stalled or slowed. This is “appears” because there are many layers of transformation underway, a great deal of which we’re not aware …

The Role of The Intellect

I’ve been working on a translation of the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali. Ran into a point I thought worth expanding on. First, let’s review Samkhya. This is a dualistic philosophy from the Vedas that enumerates …

Update on Books

Last spring, I repurposed the outline of another book into a doctoral dissertation. Essentially, the topic of my SAND18 talk, how the world comes to be. I then took a break from all that long-form …
